Welcome to Writing for Publishing

- education, assistance, advice for authors, writers, independent publishers -

Writing for Publishing is a programme of education which has been specially devised for authors, creative writers, anyone interested in writing to and for a public audience. The purpose is to help prospective authors to enhance and develop their writing and presentation skills, with a view to getting published. We regard Writing and Publishing as separate aspects of the same continuum, which feed and inform each other.

Among the subjects and themes covered by our course content include:
  • Creative writing
  • Presentation and design
  • Writing as a career
  • Overview of the publishing process
  • Self-Publishing
  • E-Publishing and the rise of the e-book
  • Building and managing your web presence (as an author, writer, independent publisher)

This course will be available at venues all over Ireland and will run throughout the year. It is also intended to make it available via distance learning techniques, for those who are prevented from attending in person.

Details of times, dates, venues, etc will be posted on this website (see Calendar of Events), as well as on Facebook and Twitter where we invite you to follow us too.

We also recommend that you Join Our Mailing List as a means of keeping in touch. You will receive periodic updates by e-mail of news and important announcements, including new course materials as they become available.

We welcome enquiries from individuals and groups interested in booking day seminars and sessions with us, which can also be tailored to areas of interest among participants.
